The Leader in Me logo

Words by Dr. John and Jane Covey

Reading, and understanding what you read, is a skill that everyone needs to be successful. The best way to improve understanding is to read a lot. There is nothing like a challenging
book to lift you up or take you to another world. Developing a love of reading
will be an asset to your child in all areas of school and give him/her a jumpstart
to a lifetime of reading!
Below is a list of books that your child will enjoy while also reinforcing the 7
Habits at home. Additional suggestions can be found at The Leader in Me
